Checkwait a minute, I almost made the same joke as the last time we did a Checkmate.
We’ve come to the end of another show and rather unceremoniously bid it farewell for another. Sorry The Prisoner 2009, we hardly knew ye. How could we? You only had 6 episodes, that was like a month and a half of podcasting at best! It’s a good thing we didn’t make a Prisoner only podcast otherwise we would have really been done now. It’s Checkmate, written by Bill Gallagher and released on November 17, 2009.
